Is it possible to caption the two figures as Figure x.a, Figure x.b?

  • You need to be more specific. Why not post an minimal working example (MWE) to explain what you have at the moment, and what you would like to get? – jub0bs Feb 14 '14 at 13:36

I think the subcaption package does what you are looking for. Here's a MWE:



\subcaptionbox{First letter}
[.4\linewidth]{\Huge A}
\subcaptionbox{Second letter}
[.4\linewidth]{\Huge B}
\caption{Two letters}\label{fig:letters}

which produces the following output:


You can include a "graphic" (picture, etc.) by use of the graphicx package and then replacing \Huge A and \Huge B with the command \includegraphics{<filename>}.


If you mean can you alter the format of how you can change a reference to "Figure 1.x" from "Figure 1x" you might like to check out the answer to a question I asked a while back (note the example shows how you do it both with the standard ref and cleveref

Is it possible to make a reference to a subfigure to appear Figure 2(a) with cleveref?


You can use subfig package.

\subfloat[][\emph{Text one}.]
   {\includegraphics[width=.45\textwidth]{file1}} \quad
\subfloat[][\emph{Text 2}.]
   {\includegraphics[width=.45\textwidth]{file2}} \\
\subfloat[][\emph{Text 3}.]
   {\includegraphics[width=.45\textwidth]{file3}} \quad
  • An alternative would be subcaption. – Johannes_B Feb 14 '14 at 14:36
